  4. Hello, I had a dream that I was walking through some beautiful well manicured grass and I was wearing all white shoes and all, then I began to walk up a small hill of grass and I saw this beautiful white 2 story home in front of me. I noticed that there was a White SUV (CHEVY TAHOE) backed in front of the garage in a very nice sub division. While all this was going on I noticed I was walking and talking with somebody during this time. After I reached the top part of the hill I noticed MANY white snakes… They seemed to be so many that they were braided together, I didn’t feel afraid or anything but I felt good so I began to walk on top of the snakes and they never tried to bite me. As I got to the front door of the home the snakes kinda dropped me off there where I entered the house as if it was mine. The door nob was locked and very stiff but as soon as I turned it the door opened. Inside everything was snow white and beautiful. I went in to the kitchen first and washed my hands and for some reason I began to walk around and noticed that everything was my taste and I felt very comfortable with my surroundings then I woke up…

    1. Hi Diana, this is a possible conception dream foretelling the conception or birth of a child; even it is not, this is still an auspicious dream. Thanks!

  15. Hello,
    Thank you for assistance with these types of dreams. I had a recent dream where I was walking outside and I noticed there were snakes around in different places. They were mostly large with brown or red stripes but not close or threatening in manner. I’m walking on either sand or earth and suddenly there was a large white snake in front of me, but protecting me from 2 other snakes (that were not white (greenish or earth colored)). I was just watching all three snakes in front of me bite each other (like squabbling but not harming), but as an observer and not really afraid as I felt the white snake was bigger and protecting me. Then I woke up. I wonder, does this dream indicate I’m not cautious enough? Or perhaps it indicates worthy faith? Thanks!

    1. Hi, telling from the fight involving 3 snakes it seems that you may have some choices to make. But as the white snake which is a symbol of good fortune stands by your side, perhaps you will have higher chance to make the right decision. Hope this helps, thanks!

  16. I dreamed I stepped into a shallow pool or fountain, I did this because I thought it would be the most convenient way to get across , as soon as both of my feet were in the water I saw hundreds of various speceis of venomous snakes of all different colors and patterns swimming around me and I got very scared, more so when I saw a giant albino python swimming straight for me looking at me intently, I sensed that it were about to strike me, I imagined what would happen if it did with is huge fangs and body that could coil around me and crush my own, so I struck it first grabbing its head and squeezing tight on its jaws..this stunned it long enough for me to step out of the pool and escape the other snakes… I then threw it back into the pool with the others and met with a group of friends to tell of my adventure… the albino snake and myself escaped unharmed, can you translate my dream for me, I sense a deeper subconscious meaning there

    1. Hi Hillary, after checking it’s believed that dream about a lot of different snakes can be a symbol suggesting that the dreamer may be entangled with something or someone, and feel confused. Thanks!

    1. Hi Zangmo, it is believed that dreaming about black snakes and white snakes is a sign of uncertainty suggesting that you may need assistance or guidance in some issues. Thanks!

  18. Hi.
    I had a dream about an adventure in the ancient Mayan jungle (which I love to play a game which features the Mayan jungle when I was young). With sights of few types of weird animal which i do not remember, then I ran into this sleeping small beautiful white snake in a broken clay pot filled with water and the white skin is having very tidy teal coloured nice pattern on its skin. Got excited seeing such a beautiful thing, so patiently I watched it from aside while getting closer to it. It got up realising I’m getting closer and I got a bit scared. But anyhow it get back to sleep like it had just saw an ally coming near.

  19. I meditated for ten days at a meditation center recently. Before meditation I vowed to practice properly this time as it is my third time and I vowed to particularly share the merits to my parents who have passed away. During the ten days, I saw two white snakes facing me in my dreams. I never knew there are white colored snakes in real. After breaking the ten-day course we can talk to one other and I am told that seeing a snake in dreams or outside is “luck”.
    This coincides with your interpretation and the other one interpret as “elders” –so I take my dream as a good omen –that my good deeds (merits) were received by my parents and doing good will bring luck (though I do not expect anything like “luck” –out of my dreams. Thanks for your dream interpretations.

  20. I had dream about going up the moutains. With my family and me and my two sisters went swiming on a river. And then they wanted go up strim then the river split into two parts. So i toll my sister we should go back because our parents would be worried. Then we went back. There sitting on a rock was a beautiful white snake with blue eyes. Therefor it went into the water and i got scared and tolled my sisters to get of the water and then i was trying to get of the water and i couldnt and the snake was swimg between my legs . I was really scared. Then i got off i was relief but the snake got off the water and we run util i fell down the snake bit me but didnt want to harm me. Then i stand up and started running toward a small store where my parents where buying food and i toll my mom want happened and she said that the snake wound harm you. Form there the snake went in to the store staring to look for me. Still i was panicing and guy grap the snake and kill it. So i was wondering what does my dream mean?

    1. Hi Dian,

      As per double check of the dictionary, dream of getting bites by a white snake is actually an auspicious sign suggesting that the you will have good luck for wealth. The fact that you tried to run away and get help is just some kind of normal reaction any would have after getting terrified in similar dreams. There is no need to worry about it too much.
